TDS Logo 600X600Pardon our enthusiasm for Dentistry, but one of the really cool aspects of the Dental Profession are the clinical advances that have been made in the past few years. You are able to help patients in ways that simply were not possible just a few short years ago. Combine these clinical advances with the fact that people are more interested in good health and appearance than ever makes THIS a great time to be a Dentist! In a recent Thriving Dentist Show, Dr. Howard Farran suggested that one of his four keys to success in today’s economy is to expand your services. Dr. Farran is right on! Today we are very fortunate to have as a Special Guest on the Thriving Dentist Show, Dr. Ryan Swain the founder of Six Month Smiles.
